NGMC to Hold Forum at Dacula Church

Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) will hold a community forum at on Thursday, Jan. 26.

The purpose of the forum is to allow area residents to learn more about NGMC’s plans for a new hospital campus located on Thompson Mill Road just a few miles away from Dacula.

“The support from the greater Braselton community was instrumental in our ability to obtain a Certificate of Need from the State for Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton,” said Tracy Vardeman, VP of Strategic Planning and Marketing for Northeast Georgia Health System in a released statement, “and our commitment throughout this process has been to give them the opportunity to provide input into the development of the River Place campus.  This will be their community’s hospital and healthcare destination, and we want to give them the chance to help make it their own.”

For those unable to attend the forum, NGMC will offer the opportunity to provide feedback through an online survey at www.nghs.com/riverplace.

“Our hope is to get as much participation as possible from the Greater Braselton community,” Vardeman said.  “We know everyone is very busy, so perhaps the online option will allow some residents to participate who might not otherwise be able.”

Other planned NGMC community forums include:

  • Tues., Jan. 10 - Hall Co. Library Spout Springs Branch
  • Wed., Jan. 11 - Sugar Hill United Methodist Church, Buford
  • Tues., Jan. 24 - Town Hall Community Room, Braselton
  • Wed., Jan. 25 - Jackson EMC, Jefferson

All forums will begin at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 770-219-3840.
